My name is Emma Kluge. I'm a history PhD student studying at the University of Sydney, currently heading in my final year (eek!). My work focuses on the West Papuan independence movement in the 1960s-1970s. More broadly I'm interested in human rights and decolonisation. I enjoy doing history that re-evokes the past to push people to reconsider the present. 

I am also a Junior Research Fellow at the Laureate for International History with Professor Glenda Sluga. My current project with the Laureate is investigating the significance of 1919 and the creation of the League of Nations in Australia.
